SEAS’ expertise paired with PaleoWest’s deep well of resources ensures that clients, regulators, and tribes will receive service, timeliness, and work-product quality the likes of which the region has never before enjoyed.”

With the addition of SEAS, PaleoWest is poised to continue its leadership role in the cultural resources management and consulting industry. The acquisition enhances PaleoWest’s ability to simplify land development across federal, state, and local levels, while providing data that drives decision making. Improving the firm’s ability to be a thoughtful partner with its clients regardless of location. PaleoWest is committed to providing the best possible services to its clients, and this acquisition is just the latest example of its commitment to growth and innovation.

Adding to this, Andrew Weir, President and former owner of Commonwealth Heritage Group says, “SEAS brings a diverse set of clients and employees to our rapidly growing company. Their excellent reputation and high standard of work is distinctly in alignment with the vision and values of PaleoWest.”
